better. roughly 50% to 18% more. we talk about this issue of wage stagnation, one way to address that is to make sure we create well-paying jobs. export related jobs are well-paying jobs. scarlet: more people began looking for work last month, which cause the unemployment rate to rise .1% to 5.5%. cory: mark: -- mark: new york fed president is likely to raise interest rates of the u.s. market continues gaming strength. continues tomarket improve and inflation expectations remain well anchored, i would expect in the absence of some dark cloud gathering over the growth outlook to support a decision to begin normalizing monetary policy later this year. mr. dudley has a permanent vote on the policy-setting federal open market committee. the fed meets again on june 17 and 18th. scarlet: deutsche bank is

he has also been a venture capitalist and formerly worked at goldman sachs. those are some of the top stories we are following on this friday. scarlet: coming up on "bloomberg weather may berm here, but only one half of americans will take time off work to enjoy it. why the great american vacation is on the decline. and the high-end airline that is revolutionizing air travel between paris, london, new york. scarlet: tomorrow is the belmont stakes. we look at the big bets ahead of the race. we have added more coming up. mark: back to one of the big stories of the day, jobs. today's employment report showing companies are hiring in silicon valley, and it's a look and violate -- in silicon valley, they are hiring like crazy. 59%, andto last year's 46% in 2013, this could mean up to 16,000 new jobs. ceo of the silicon
valley leadership group joins us now with more from mountain view, california. is what you see in silicon valley consistent with the broader picture being painted by the jobs report today? guest: it's not only consistent, it's america on steroids with the way that silicon valley across industry clusters keeps going up into the right. we are seeing it in high tech, biotech, clean and green tech across the driving industries of silicon valley. the innovation economy, we see just from the 217 ceos that responded to our annual ceo climate survey. 15,000 new jobs here in silicon valley in 2015. mark: it can't just be the size of the paycheck. what is attracting this intellectual capital to silicon valley?
entrepreneurship. we have an opportunity to change the world, or at least our small corner of it for the better. whether those are jobs in high tech or biotech, in pharma were clean and green tech, it's a very mission driven culture that attracts the best and the brightest grown locally from around the country, and of course, from around the world as well. reserve ise federal fixated on wage growth. stagnant,h has been but we are finally beginning to see a pickup in the middle of the last year. in the chart you can see in the second quarter of 2014, the median income in silicon valley was $116,000, 89% higher than the typical american household of $61,000. this is all relative, the cost of living is so much higher in silicon valley. is there a wage growth problem in silicon valley? guest: scarlet, in the technology sector, and the driving industries of silicon
valley, wages are high, and they are only getting higher because the labor market is so tight. it's really an opportunity for employees to pick where they want to work. the challenge we haven't silicon valley though is if you have a college degree and you are 25 years old or older, there's almost no unemployment rates. it's about 2%. if you only have a high school diploma or not even a high school diploma, you are looking at close to double digit unemployment. we as a valley and we as a nation need to do a much better job in making sure that our young people, especially the underserved ethnic communities have a better education and opportunities. scarlet: even within the white-collar world, there's a big divide between engineers and coders and investors. and other white collar jobs like doctors and lawyers. guest: doctors and lawyers, we do pretty well. but you are right. for those jobs that don't require a college degree, there is a big hit in those numbers.
that is of course in a supply and demand economy. we would expect somewhat. we want to make sure that as many folks are prosperous in this hot economy as possible. mistake, the driving industries are so critically important -- a rising tide may not lift all boats, but it receding tide sinks them all. our driving industries are doing well also helping everyone to do better. mark: you spoke about underserved communities. do these communities feel welcome in silicon valley? we see the statistics and stories that there seems to be a disparity between caucasian males and females and other members of the population. how do you address that? guest: i feel this personally. our daughter is 100% latino that we adopted out of a small town in utah a few years ago. that is really made us dive deep into this issue. here are the numbers. 27% of our community in silicon
valley is latino. 50% of our kindergartners today are latino. including my own kindergarten daughter. only 1% of our stem workforce actually tech trained workers in silicon valley are latino. we have to do a much better job of diversifying the stem pipeline from cradle through college and career. we are working on that the silicon valley leadership group program, programmatically. we need to see and policy at the regional, state, and federal level as well. turn to othert to issues you champion, like transportation and housing. both are needed in silicon valley as the job machine keeps growing. what can silicon valley learn from tel aviv and other innovation tech cubs? guest: when we ask about what the biggest challenges in the business climate, the top two issues are housing prices for workers and families and traffic.
those of the flipside of the same coin here in silicon valley. the good news is, when we ask tech workers and other workers in society, it's also those top two issues. instead of whining about it, we're going to win. the leadership group next year plans to run the fifth transportation funding measure here in the silicon valley area in the last 30 years. we've already done that to generate $12 billion in local funding for traffic release. we will do that again in 2016. and continue to work on the homeless crisis and the housing prices. mark: is this something you have to embrace yourself? it's no secret that stalemate partisanship in washington make a lot of things -- they get pushed to the sideline. nothing can get done. guest: you hit it right on the head. we learned a long time ago you have to pull yourself up from your own bootstraps. you hear about bootstrapping with start up companies. we also bootstraps when it comes to tackling these very tough
intransigent issues like traffic, housing, better education systems. we are willing to do that, but we would rather do it and more successfully do it when we have strong public sector partners. it's not always easy and d.c.. we are an optimistic culture here in silicon valley. we will keep trying. mark: carl is the ceo of the silicon valley leadership group. thank you for your time. on the: still ahead "bloomberg market day," if you think your vacation wasn't long enough, you may be onto something. disappointing data for people who want to get away. ♪
